A vector plot is a type of cartesian chart where each point has an X and Y position, a length and a direction. Vectors are drawn as arrows.

In TypeScript the type option must always be set.

Configuration options for the series are given in three levels:

  1. Options for all series in a chart are defined in the plotOptions.series object.
  2. Options for all vector series are defined in plotOptions.vector.
  3. Options for one single series are given in the series instance array.
Highcharts.chart('container', {
    plotOptions: {
        series: {
            // general options for all series
        vector: {
            // shared options for all vector series
    series: [{
        // specific options for this series instance
        type: 'vector'
